  Molecular regulation of surface remodelling in the human pathogen Schistosoma mansoni
  Prof A Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this PhD project you will perform cutting edge research that aims to identify molecular signalling events that underpin the survival of schistosomes in their human host.
  Molecular adaptation in Leishmania parasites
  Dr D Jeffares, Prof J Mottram
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Leishmania are single-celled protozoan parasites of the Order Trypanosomatidae that cause the neglected tropical disease leishmaniasis.
  Detecting Schistisome Infection in Biomphalaria and Bulinus Snails
  Dr C M Wade, Dr S Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Schistosomiasis (bilharzia) is a neglected tropical disease that affects some 252 million people worldwide. It is caused by parasitic flatworms of the genus Schistosoma and is contracted through human contact with contaminated water.
  Novel strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of snakebites
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Snakebites represent a major neglected tropical disease affecting several million people worldwide and resulting in as many as 150000 deaths each year.
  Longitudinal trajectories of renal function, and dynamic prediction of progression to end-stage renal disease: a data-driven analysis and validation using regression and machine learning methods in a bi-national population-based cohort #NDORMS-2020/1
  Prof D Prieto-Alhambra, Dr V Strauss, Dr S Khalid, Dr D Robinson
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Prof Daniel Prieto-Alhambra. 2. Dr V Strauss. 3. Dr Sara Khalid. 4. Dr Danielle Robinson. 5. Dr Laurie Tomlinson. There is a scarcity of data on the natural history of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the general population, and on markers of rapid progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
  Rapid Synthesis of Fluorinated Drug Scaffolds
  Dr G Weaver
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will involve the synthesis and characterisation of new heterocyclic compounds which can act as core scaffolds for drug development.
  Modelling the effect of gender on survival in cystic fibrosis patients
  Dr J Barrett, Dr B Tom
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition affecting more than 10,000 people in the UK. Cystic fibrosis patients commonly experience respiratory symptoms, but the disease can also affect the digestive system, liver and bones.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
